• H&R Block: ‘No One Understands Obamacare’

    H&R Block, the nation’s largest for-profit tax preparation company, sees Obamacare as a huge boon to its business thanks to the millions of Americans confused by all the new tax rules and regulations of the law.

    H&R Block Chief Executive Officer Bill Cobb told Reuters that “generally tax complexity is a good thing for H&R Block.” So it’s easy to see how the dozens of new Obamacare tax laws will be a big boost to the tax prep giant. 

    “Cobb said the Kansas City, Missouri, company expected about 25 percent of its clients to file one of two forms newly required on 2014 returns by the 2010 Affordable Care Act,” Reuters reports.

    Your Obamacare nightmare will be an enormous money-making wet dream for H&R Block. And they made a fancy video to highlight how.

    “Now that the Affordable Care Act has made health care a tax issue, no one can understand it,” an H&R Block announcement video declares.

    Monday, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell pushed Obamacare enrollment at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event hosted by Al Sharpton.

    “In the spirit of Dr. King, we are asking you to help us again in big ways and small,” Burwell told a crowd gathered at Sharpton’s National Action Network headquarters in New York City according to the Daily Caller.

    “Host an enrollment event at your church, or your community,” Burwell suggested. “Reach out to your partners, ask them to help. Use your Twitter and social media to spread the word about the February 15th deadline. Tell your neighbors, and tell your friends.”

    Despite Obama seeing rising poll numbers, his signature health care law is still opposed by a whopping 51.3 percent of Americans.
